Wrecked Magazine Issue 28 On Our Virtual Newsstand [READ IT]


Issue 28 is here for viewing just before the big main event at Irwindale Speedway. The issue breaks down Ryan Tuerck’s Scion FR-S 2JZ engine build and we sit down with Pro Am driver Matt Coffman who has a great story to tell and is focused on Formula Drift in the future. We examine seven tracks that Formula Drift should consider for expansion in the future and our Mustang RTR gets a differential and gears. Read the issue with the link below.

Drift Colorado Combines Drifting and Paintball [VIDEO]

I haven’t played paintball since probably right around the day I got my drivers license. My Tippman 98 has log been retired and located somewhere I most likely couldn’t find. However, I would go buy a new one today (assuming it is still relevant to the paintball community) if someone would let me ride shotgun in a drift car and shoot people. The video spans a little over 5 minutes and huge hat tip to Enjuku Racing for showing us the video and asking us to post it because I love it.

2013 Spring Matsuri with Wrecked Magazine Part 2 [VIDEO]

Here is a second video feature from our trip out to Japan thanks to ReplayXD and Enjuku Racing. Part 2 shows more clips of Minami, School course, and North course with footage from our Replay XD cameras over the weekend. The weather I would call perfect for Japanese spring and with over 400 registered cars for the weekend we have plenty of things to shoot.

Enjuku is offering 8% off if Tuerck makes Top 8

Enjuku Racing will be giving back to the FD fans, pending Ryan Tuerck’s finish in Palm Beach, Florida. If Tuerck finishes in the top 8, Enjuku will give all fans 8% off their entire order on Monday and Tuesday with the promo code ‘TUERCK8‘ at checkout. Tuerck (unofficially) qualified 13th overall today with a score of 76.8. In case you haven’t already picked a driver to root for over the weekend, this sounds like a good excuse to root for Tuerck! Tuerck is one of only 3 drivers this season who has made top 8 or better at both rounds so far, so the chances are looking good for him to continue this trend.

2013 Spring Matsuri with Wrecked Magazine Part 1 [VIDEO]

Our first video digging into our trip out to the Drift Heaven Spring Matsuri weekend at Ebisu Circuit is here. Just one week before we headed straight to Formula Drift Road Atlanta we saw Ebisu Circuit come to life with over 400+ drift cars take to all the tracks for two full on days of insane fun. The white Chaser with the on-car camera in our thumbnail is driven by Daigo Saito along with some other D1GP drivers, one hundred Australians, and a good mix of grassroots Japanese drivers.

2013 Streetwise Drift Round 1 at Gresham Motorsports Park [RESULTS]

The Streetwise Drift series kicked off this weekend the day after Formula Drift Round 2 with a big event at Gresham Motorsports Park. Kelsey Rowlings who we interviewed in Issue 25 qualified 6th but spun out in her Top 16 tandem run. Brandon Wicknick left Road Atlanta on Saturday and landed a much more desirable fourth place in the Pro Am Round. The biggest scoop of the weekend is Alec Holendell who we are told has been driving less than one year and is still in high school managed to land a big second place finish! Sounds like he is one to keep an eye on for the next few years. Here is how the results finished up:

1st Brad Heyl
2nd Alec Hohandell
3rd Ron Ewerth
4th Brandon Wicknick

2013 Spring Matsuri at Ebisu Circuit Day 2 [GALLERY]

The second day of Matsuri was even more wild than the first one. We got sync’d up with large groups of drivers running courses all day and put to use our video camera and photographs to document a great day of drifting. We traveled all the courses over the course of the day capturing D1GP drivers in action and tons of forgeigners banging their beater bought missiles from www.powervehicles.com around anywhere Ebisu has to offer. Here is a Monday gallery of the action as it went down!

Watch a Drifter at Spring Matsuri Mount a Tire by Hand in Less than 60 Seconds [VIDEO]

Just one of the awesome clips we captured at the Spring Matsuri Drift Heaven week at Ebisu Circuit was this group of drivers mounting tires by hand. This one drifter we captured on film could mount a whole tire ready for air in 56 seconds using his hands, feet, and a crowbar. Sit back and watch this awesome feat.

2013 Spring Matsuri at Ebisu Circuit Day 1 [GALLERY]

Sunday kicked off the Matsuri weekend with a near perfect day at Ebisu Circuit where we took in the sights, sounds, and tire smoke of almost 400 registered cars banging doors, fenders, and walls around all the tracks available at Ebisu. Thanks to our partners Replay XD and Enjuku Racing we sent out a team of three to Japan to take it all in with tons of video footage and some photo galleries to boot! Day 1 was the calmer start to the weekend with tons of drivers taking on north and school course through the day and well into the middle of the morning.

Jeremy Lowe Shows off Preview of his Mazda Rx-7 for 2013 Formula Drift

Jeremy Lowe is making his 2013 Formula Drift season debut at Round 2 Road Atlanta next weekend with some all new parts slapped onto his Mazda Rx-7. With the help of some key sponsors including Enjuku Racing, Smashed Tees, BC Racing and Turbo By Garrett he plans to step his driving up to a new level for 2013. Here is a quick interview with J Lowe to see how he is prepared for the 2013 season.

Edgar:Doing anything new with your program this season in FD?
Jeremy Lowe: The biggest change is the new partnership with SMASHED this season. They’re an awesome new company that has been great to work with, and they share the same love for drifting that all the little guy privateers like myself do.  Also, Turbo by Garrett hooked us up with an awesome new turbo that makes the car more responsive and a little easier to drive. On top of that, Enjuku has been a huge help, and giving us more support than ever. I cannot say enough about how much I love those guys!”

Edgar: How do you feel about the new judging system and what’s something we can look forward to in your program this season?
J Lowe: “I kinda like the new qualifying system, but I haven’t driven in it yet so I don’t know if I should say anything. But I like the idea of being able to lock yourself in the top 16 with your first run.”

Edgar: What track are you looking forward to the most?
J Lowe: “I think right now I’m looking forward to Texas the most because it’s a new track, and making it fresh for everyone kind of levels the playing field for the teams and drivers. Last year was a lot of going to a track for the first time and competing against guys that have driven there the past 5-10 years.
